If you or others on the list figure out a good process for this sort of
thing, I'd love to hear about it.
These kinds of efforts to create a tactile or an audio representation of
something that is so visual always interest me.
As a similar, but different example, I've long tried to find good tools
that would permit efficient representation of mind-maps, via audio,
braille, and/or both.
